Hi Stefan, Oliver,

I have little to add to what Stefan said here. Feel free to subscribe to 
the dev mailing list and post questions.

Otherwise, atm, I think confluence is the way to go. I tried to use 
docbook but, pfff, it sucks. I mean, XML this, XML that, it's for 
computers, not for human beings. '<' and '>' are just a pain in the eyes...
